Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I got sent these - the Mel Gison and Andy McNabb are classic. Anyone else have any they have seen, written or wished they had? Is Shuggie and ARRSEr?

    Dear Sir...

    Hats off to the England cricketers for their achievements in the
    Ashes this summer, which rightly earned Andrew 'Freddie' Flintoff
    BBC Sports personality of the Year. Winning a two-team tournament
    against a nation with a much smaller population once in every ten
    attempts, then never shutting up about it makes me proud to be British.

    'Alton Towers - Where the magic never ends', or so the commercial says.
    Imagine my disappointment when it closed at 7.30.

    My friend's mum recently pointed out that I have the same ironing board
    cover as her. Can anyone think of a more mundane and pointless remark to
    make than this?

    Did anyone else feel that Mel Gibson's remake of the classic Life
    of Brian wasn't anywhere near as funny as the original?
    Paul, Romford :lol:

    On the BBC website, I read with interest that some scientists in
    Australia have discovered the smallest fish known to exist.
    They've obviously never been to the Britannia Chippy on the Gloucester

    Could the Home Secretary explain to me how biometric checks on
    iris patterns and fingerprints are going to help keep tabs on
    muslim cleric Abu Hamsa.

    With reference to that series "Manhunt" where ex-Special Forces soldiers
    try to hunt down Andy McNab. Why don't the producers include a couple
    Of Iraqis in the hunting team? They found the tw*t quickly enough the
    Last time he played hide and seek with them.
    Shuggie, Email

    Hats off to the witty burglars who stole my entire CD collection
    with the exception of "There is Nothing Left to Lose" by the Foo
    Fighters. I hope that when sentencing, the judge takes into account their
    Splendid sense of humour.

    I was extremely saddened to hear of Richard Whiteley's recent death.
    But I was cheered to imagine his life support machine making the
    Famous Countdown "da-da, da-da, da-da-da-da! Booooooo!" sound as he took
    his final breaths.

    What's all this nonsense about that 66-year-old Romanian woman being
    The world's oldest mum? My mum's 77. Beat that.
